It’s the dog days of summer, and we all know what that means: bikini time. I have it on good authority (my own) that celebrities do nothing besides parade around in progressively skimpier attire all summer long. The goal, by the end, is to be wearing nothing more than a little bit of skin by September. You really should be showing most of your bones by that point. And I think that’s about all that’s left, in terms of the surprise factor. I’ve seen so much of so many stars’ bodies that I can barely summon the strength to raise an eyebrow. Okay that’s a lie, I scan the photos obsessively, hoping for an errant cellulite shot. And then I pretend I can’t raise an eyebrow.
A lot of people have puzzled over Kanye West’s relationship with cue ball Amber Rose. She’s also been called M&M head and a few other things I can’t repeat. I’ve been as confused as the next person – most of his women have been so feminine! But on the other hand, it’s nice to see he doesn’t just go for one single type. All that said, yesterday Amber bared her barely-there bikini body, and I think I have a better idea about why Kanye’s into her. I have never been able to look south of her head, but girl does have a bangin bod. And a pretty open philosophy when it comes to love, too.
Complex: There’s constant chatter on the blogs about your sexual preference. Are you bisexual?
Amber Rose: Yeah, they label me a bisexual freak stripper that f*cks Kanye on a daily basis. [Laughs.] You know: “Amber Rose, the bisexual, dyke, freak, whatever the f*ck.” To answer that: I’m extremely open with my sexuality. I can be in love with a woman, I can be in love with a man. I’m not into bestiality [laughs] but as far as humans go, I definitely find beauty in everybody, whether they’re heavy-set, super-skinny, if they’re white, black, Indian, Asian, Spanish. I can see beauty in anybody. I’m not into threesomes or orgies and shit like that. If I see a women and I think she’s beautiful and I like her, and she likes me back we can definitely try to be in a relationship together.
So, good to know we can rule out Amber Rose and animals. I’ve got to say, I might accuse her of a lot of things, but that would not be one of them. In fact she probably could have left that one alone. Even though she sort of phrased it in a crass way, I appreciate Amber’s message about seeing beauty in everybody. I sure as hell can’t, but I respect that she can or at least tries. She also gave an interesting quote about her career.
Superstar rapper Kanye West paraded his bikini-clad girlfriend, Amber Rose, in Miami Beach Tuesday, and boy, did paps get some good shots!
While West, 32, stayed covered up in an all-white get-up, Rose, 26, wore a teenie-weenie orange bikini, complete with a dental floss back showing off a sculpted, flawless rear end.
Rose, a stripper-turned-Ford model, recently told with Complex magazine of her beau, “Obviously, Kanye is a super-duper megastar, so he definitely gave me the fast track to the top, and I love him and appreciate him so much for that.”
I don’t want to accidentally sound like I’m turning into an Amber Rose fan here, but I like that she admitted Kanye’s help and was appreciative about it. It’s so annoying when someone no one’s ever heard of starts dating a celebrity, and then they start talking about how hard they’ve been working on their career all these years (ahem, George Clooney’s ex, Sarah Larson). Not that any part of me thinks Kanye would let someone take credit for anything he had a part of, girlfriend or not. But while Amber does have an amazing body, I doubt any modeling agency would ever have paid her attention if her name weren’t attached to West’s. Now she’s got a modeling contract with the prestigious Ford Agency, along with everyone ogling her bikini. What more could she ask for?
Solid gold set up for the commenters.
